Heh heh heh Earl - that was just what was along the grass line - the bed is up against the lawn. I wanted to make sure I didn't mower any potatoes, so I checked along the soil line. Since this pic, I've taken in about a bushel of cranberry reds. I still have the all-blue, the king harry and the russian banana fingerlings that I haven't even looked at. Plus another couple rows of the reds. We like potatoes....

pulled some King Harry out today, and didn't even get a chance to photograph them before they got cooked and eaten - very good potatoes!

Tessa - I planted about a pound each of seed potato - all chitted except the fingerlings, which are small to begin with. I'd say I have +/- 10 plants of each variety, maybe a dozen king harry...
